“Your Brain Is Better on Music” with Alex Doman
Episode 18 – Sound Foundations for Parenting Podcast with Darren McCarthy and Brian Powers
Brian Powers and Darren McCarthy’s Sound Foundations for Parenting Podcast brings parenting and education visionaries from around the world to the attention of their audience. They are both dedicated fathers who offer proven strategies, interview pioneers in education, give insights about how to be successful parents and even share their imperfect experiences of being parents themselves!
On this episode, they speak with Alex Doman, founder of Advanced Brain Technologies and creator of The Listening Program® (TLP), and many other brain-based products. Darren McCarthy is a TLP Certified Provider and has been using ABT programs since 1999, so their conversation was wide-ranging and pinpointed many of the ways that TLP can be used to improve brain performance.
One of the most intriguing parts of their conversation was a brief history of the evolution of brain plasticity. Alex is the third generation in a family where the focus has been on the field of child brain development, now going on 75 years. The Doman family has been committed to helping people realize their unlimited potential. The secret is providing opportunities to learn and grow based on our individual strengths and to harness the plasticity of the brain to support this growth.
Alex explains the paradigm shift that has been occurring since the early years of his Grandfather’s work of developing and using brain-based treatment programs to help people with brain injuries, autism, and even comatose patients. The acceptance of the concept that the brain can change and improve with the right opportunities, continues to unfold.
It was very important to Brian and Darren to have Alex explain to their audience of parents and families what help The Listening Program can bring to them. For those of you who are not familiar with TLP, it is an evidence based music listening therapy in which you listen to acoustically modified music that has been specially composed and arranged and recorded as a therapeutic modality. People listen for 15-30 minutes per day, five days per week through headphones to enhance brain function and improve performance. It is a daily practice, that becomes a part of your lifestyle.
TLP reaches numerous areas of function, by supporting the way the brain perceives, processes, stores, and adapts to stimulation in response to the music. Changes are seen in communication, learning skills, motor skills, sensory processing, executive function, social & emotional, behavior, creativity, stress resilience and more.
The Listening Program can be a very important anchor for each of us, and there is an opportunity for each of you to experience Shift60, an introductory TLP program, for free until June 30, 2020.
